Charges await man who fled due to unpaid child support

58238255_S.jpgGiven the deep love that most parents in Bloomington likely have for their children, the willingness to pay child support may never be an issue. The ability to, however, may be a different story. Oftentimes, one circumstances can change from those the enjoyed when their child support obligations were first determined. Yet unforeseen obstacles such as the loss of a job, a reduction in working hours or other financial considerations may ultimately make meeting one's child support obligation virtually impossible. When such a scenario arises, however, some might fear petitioning the court to have their payments reduced for fear of being viewed as not wanting to support their kids. 

One obligated to pay child support should not, however, accrue a series of arrears by letting payments lapse thinking that they will repay them later. Such action can leave one facing consequences similar to those that an Ohio man is being forced to deal with. Local authorities were trying to serve him with a warrant for unpaid child support, yet a panicked and took off, leading police on a pursuit that ultimately ended in his arrest. He now faces several other charges on top of those stemming from his unpaid child support. 

No one may want to see one who is struggling to pay child support go to prison. In such a scenario, everyone may lose. The obligor is unable to earn money to repay their arrears, and the obligee (along with the couple's children) are forced to continue on without that support. Ideally, a couple may be able to work together to resolve any missed payments without it negatively affected both sides. Coming to such an agreement may be easier when those involved can rely in the experience and expertise of a family law attorney.
